Frankfurt's districts

Mother's Day

On May 12, 2019 is Mother's Day! Then the breakfast table for mum is lovingly set again, beautiful pictures are painted, bouquets of flowers and chocolates are bought. And certainly a certain Heintje will also smash his immortal “mama“ in some households. In this special we want to give you a few tips on what you can do in Frankfurt on Mother's Day. We would also like to highlight the origins of Mother's Day.

A city portrait in 45 parts

Frankfurt - Our beautiful city on the Main has many faces. The metropolis on the Main with its significant history is lively, modern and multicultural, sometimes a bit rough, but also amiable, contemplative and village traditional. Yes, Frankfurt is not only Mainhattan with its impressive skyline. The city lives to a large extent also through its 45 districts.

Each of these districts is quasi a place for itself, with its own history, its own culture, a distinctive life of its own and often also with a complete infrastructure.

Here the opulent Wilhelminian style quarter with many bistros and trendy clubs, there the funny and lively village with its colourful weekly market, there the glamorous Westend with skyscrapers towering into the sky and the most expensive living space in town.</In the west the Höchst, which was shaped by the former pharmaceutical giant, with its enchanting historic old town, in the northeast the highest situated district Bergen-Enkheim with its village character, in the east the former industrial quarter, which is in a state of upheaval, or the "dribbdebach" Sachsenhausen, with the Ebbelwoiviertel on one side and the unique art and culture mile, the Museumsufer, on the other. And with the Riedberg, a completely new district has been created in the northwest of Frankfurt.</p>

It is fun to discover the many facets of Frankfurt in the different districts. So come with us on a little journey through Frankfurt and get inspiration to discover perhaps (still) unknown districts anew.

The THEATER ALTE BRÜCKE doesn't want to remain inactive during the play-free time. The small theatre in the Brückenviertel is currently being converted into a "streaming studio", from which live theatre, improv and much more will be streamed on weekends. A really great action, which you should definitely support:


The hr symphony orchestra had to cancel planned performances even before the temporary closure of the concert halls. However, in addition to a concert that was played without an audience and broadcast live on the Internet, the orchestra also offers a large selection of concert videos on its homepage that can be enjoyed over and over again:

Also the Bavarian State Opera has a video-on-demand offer worth seeing. Since current recordings have been cancelled, older recordings are available here free of charge:

Anyone willing to invest a little money can enjoy the rich on-demand offer of the Metropolitan Opera New York with top-class productions. The offer can be booked worldwide:


The cinemas in Frankfurt are still open (as of 15.03.2020) - but usually with some restrictions. For example, only about half of the available seats are offered and hygiene standards are even more stringent. However, since it can be assumed that, as in other cities, cinemas in Frankfurt will soon be closed, more home cinema will be announced in the coming weeks. If you have a subscription to Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+ (from 24.03.) and Co, you will be offered a wealth of films and series that allow you to enjoy a relaxed escape from reality, which you really need from time to time, especially in these times.

You will find some especially worthwhile streaming tips (soon) HERE



Yes, just reading a good book again can be really nice. Of course you can also stroll through Frankfurt in many different ways, whether in non-fiction or novels - and without any risk of infection! Some current Frankfurt books that we would like to recommend to you can be found HERE

further Frankfurt book tips you can discover HERE. </Those who like to attend readings can also be helped. At you will find a large selection of recordings of live-readings, with which you can shorten the waiting time for the end of the reading-free time:

In addition, some authors also offer online readings via their social media accounts.

As in all areas, the same applies to the purchase of books: SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL DEALER! If possible, buy in small bookshops - either directly on site or online. Most bookstores now offer a delivery service and need your support more urgently than large mail order companies!
